Open Source initiatives and projects provide companies with a vehicle to accelerate innovation through collaboration with the global community of open source developers. However, accompanying the benefits of teaming with the open source community are important responsibilities: Companies must ensure compliance with applicable open source license obligations. In this talk, we look closely at the role of the Legal Counsel in ensuring open source compliance and discuss a number of practical advice that a Legal Counsel can provide to the software development team. Such practical advice will enable software developers to make daily decisions related to open source licenses without having to go back to the Legal Counsel for every single question. This talk is highly recommended for people involved in ensuring open source compliance inside their organizations.
